Who are you and what do you do?

Gennaro Garcia, I create art in every single way possible. #artegennaro

How did you get your start?

Since I was a child I’ve been creating art and I’m still learning, life as an artist is a never ending learning story. That’s the best part.

What inspires you?

Everything around. I try to spent time with people that inspire me in places that inspire me too: positive people, creating art, enjoying the view, eating, drinking & designing, planning, dreaming, living those places … With that kind of people.

What do you like about AZ?

The possibilities, the opportunities that I find every day, the people, my gente, mi familia & friends, the food scene, the scenery in every road trip I do when I leave Arizona highways and when I return, and love for where I live. I love this, my city, my Phoenix .

Gennaro Garcia 01Where can we see you(r) work?

At my studio, on the streets, at schools, at the airport, at local restaurants, design stores and galleries like Calvin Charles in downtown Scottsdale, Xico gallery, Practical Art, {9} The Gallery, and For The People.

In San Diego at Casa Artelexia and Casa Valencia Galeria, and restaurants. In LA at ChimMaya Gallery and restaurants too.

In Mexico City at Catamundi. In San Miguel de Allende at La Burgandilla Gallery, restaurants and the park. Also in my hometown San Luis, Sonora at the regional museum and in the galleries and at Finca La Divina Hotel Valle de Guadalupe and Altozano to name a few 😉

That’s my way of showing my art, at places I admire and feed my soul. I like to exhibit my art in places that I want to go and get inspired. La vida del artista, it’s about that.

What would you like to accomplish before you die?

Mmmm. To know that I was a great father. That, my friend, it’s art, that will be my masterpiece.

What is your mantra?

La vida Es chula !!
Life’s beautiful !!

Live it like it was your last day, enjoy it, don’t complain about everything!! Kiss , hug , laugh , eat, drink, create!! Help your people!! Represent yourself!!!
